hello. I just bought Phenom 2 X4 965, it's pretty cool (using the box cooler). Unfortunately, I am not sure what should I set the smart fan target temperature to. My CPU is 45*C while idle (2492 RPM), and I set the target at 52*C. When it goes over 52*C, it kicks into 6000 RPM, which sounds like a jet engine, but it still has problems decreasing the temperature, when I exited BF:BC2, I had 54*C!
My question is, what should I set the smart fan target to/how many RPM while idle is ok?
Also, what do you think would help me more - better CPU cooler or better case? My case has barely any holes in it and no case fans at all.
